Cloud Theatre is a professional touring English educational theatre company ( TIE - theatre in education ), founded in 2011 in lstanbul/Turkey and London/England.
Over the years Cloud Theatre established itself as Turkey's largest theatre in education company.
Over the last eight years Cloud Theatre produced six different plays and already performed around 850 times in Turkey in front of more than 300.000 students.
Cloud Theatre currently expands its touring areas throughout Russia, Germany and other European countries
Our aim is to inspire and motivate students to learn a foreign language in a playful way. The students don't only enjoy English in a fun and efficient learning environment, they are also offered to get inspired by theatre, an important medium of the performing arts.
In order to provide the young audience this great learning experience, we have been producing 50 minutes long English theatre performances.
Our scenery, stage design and technical equipment such as lighting, speakers and microphones are 100% mobile and portable. That on the one hand allows us to travel easily and set up our stage within only one hour.
Furthermore the mobility of the staging gives us the chance to change our scenery four times within a single play.
What we need from you is simple: electricity and cool kids.
We do the rest!
As a preparation before and a profound addition after the shows, we also provide seasonal workbooks for the students to make them practice a specific English vocabulary and grammar suitable to the play performed.
CONTENTS OF OUR PLAYS
The seasonal plays are either referring to historical facts, stories and people, such as Leonardo DaVinci & Romeo and Juliet, or are completely fictionally written by one of our native scriptwriters.
The plays are 50 mins longs and usually include three catchy, ingoing songs, which the actors perform on stage.
After the theatre performances we usually offer a 20-30 mins Q&A panel, in order to create an open exchange with actors and students. Our directors, scriptwriters and actors/ actresses exclusively speak native English and address the students according to their language levels.
